Ojo de Agua, Isla de Ometepe

#2 of 99 in Things to do in Rivas Department
Fountain · Tourist Spot
Cool off at Ojo de Agua, a natural spring. Dip into the clear, cool water, brought to the spring by an underground river that has been purified by the nearby volcano. The soft, mineralized water offers an inviting moment of respite from the heat of the area, and gets constantly renewed and replenished by the spring. Separated into two main pools, the springs have seen an upswing in popularity with locals and tourists alike, drawing significant crowds on weekends and holidays. Sit on one of the deck chairs and relax under the shade of the umbrellas, treating yourself to some fresh coconut from the onsite vendors. Put Ojo de Agua at the forefront of your travel plans using our Isla de Ometepe road trip site.
